The 7th Edition of this classic book delivers more clinically oriented information on embryology and teratology than ever before. Week by week, stage by stage, you'll explore how organs and systems develop, why and when birth defects occur, and what the vital roles of the placenta and fetal membranes are in development.
The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.
This is a clear and concise treatise on embryology with a special focus on clinically related topics. This sixth edition represents a considerable improvement over the fifth edition, published in 1993. Geared toward first or second-year medical students, the purpose is to enlighten the reader about the intricacies of embryological development as well as introduce the student to the molecular basis of development as it applies to clinically relevant issues. Although targeted toward novice medical students, practitioners in the field of obstetrics and gynecology would find this work a useful review and reference tool. Undergraduate students in biology, nursing, and other health related fields could also benefit from its use. The authors succeed in highlighting the key events of human development from gametogenesis to birth. They accomplish this journey through the use of simplistic, yet informative illustrations and unencumbered text. A sprinkling of scanning electron micrographs coupled with clinical correlations and study questions help to punctuate important facts and processes. Five beautifully illustrated timetables found in the appendix serve as ready reference to salient facts. This is, indeed, an easy-to-read account of human embryogenesis. The authors, by virtue of increasing the amount of clinical material, adding new color photography, including more scanning electron micrographs, expanding sections on teratology, and including simplified information on molecular mechanisms, have perhaps set a new standard for teaching embryology to first-year medical students. In a time when medical students are required to digest even more rote facts and are also thrown even earlierinto the clinical fray, this book should serve as a welcome addition to their educational war chest.
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Harris S Goodman, MD (Saint Francis Memorial Hospital) Description: This book provides an updated, systematic description of human development before birth. Purpose: The purpose is to help medical, dental, and other students in the health sciences not only understand human embryology and pass exams, but also be well prepared for a career in patient care, research, and/or teaching. Audience: The authors have received multiple awards for excellence in medical/dental, graduate, and undergraduate teaching. Features: The book presents a logical approach to studying embryology. Initial chapters cover human development as it progresses across time. Subsequent chapters discuss specific organ systems and regions. Final chapters highlight common birth defects and signaling pathways. Particularly helpful in understanding concepts are the numerous well-designed, multicolor diagrams and corresponding photomicrographs, gross photos, and radiological studies. A small number of animations are available online, which greatly help in the understanding of the three-dimensional aspects of embryological development. Particularly captivating is the inclusion of common birth defects and their etiologies, not only in one of the final chapters, but throughout the book. Assessment: This is an excellent study guide for medical, dental, or other health science students. The ninth edition includes numerous color diagrams, gross photographs, diagnostic images, and a small but captivating set of three-dimensional animations, which help make a difficult topic easier to understand.
